the most quotable line from the romney speech is hope is not a strategy talking about the middle east. you used the words leading from behind. mitt romney used it at least once in the speech. the speech was an attempt to say, this is what barack obama has done. here is what i would do. it was tonal more than specific. it was more we need to be bigger, more aggressive whether it's iran or another syria. it was broadly philosophically we need a stronger, more muscular approach. >> on several points he's critical on iran because he would have opposed the initial attempt to open up towards iran and thinks the president didn't go far enough at all in supporting the green revolution of students in iran in june of 2009. the response from the obama team is that the iranian leaders, the reform leaders, student revolutionaries were saying, don't be too overt. it will have a backlash effect. that can be e debated. on sanctions they are criticizing the failure to go tougher though the president arguably did better than george bush in getting russia and china to permit tougher sanctions. they are

all the times mitt romney talked about how the president failed to get the unemployment rate below 8% in 43 straight months. obviously that's eliminated as a talking point. to the extent that this affects voters, i don't know. the debate was watched by about 70 million people; that's a lot of people and a lot of people took away positive impressions of mitt romney from that debate. i don't foe if this competes with that. but certainly we saw in the past couple of months that people were beginning to feel a lot more confident about the economic situation personally and for the country. you saw it in the polls. we were wondering why was this data turning around. bill clinton gave a great speech at the convention and everyone loved what clinton said. it now turns out there was some underlying economic trends that was feeding that that we didn't really know about, but that makes sense now. and i think if that's the case heading into the critical month of october and obviously in november where we're going to have one more jobs report, i think that really does benefit the president. becau

advisers and they say it's the same plan. when governor romney talks about this board, for example, unelected board that we have created, what this is is a group of health care expert, doctors, et cetera, to figure out how can we reduce the cost of care in the system overall? because there are two ways of dealing with our health care crisis. one is to simply leave a whole bunch of people uninsured and let them fend for themselves, to let businesses figure out how long they can continue to pay premiums until they finally give up and the workers are no longer getting insured. and that's been the trend line. or, alternatively, we can figure out how to make the cost of care more effective. there are ways of doing t. cleveland clinic, one of the best health care systems in the world, they actually provide great care cheaper than average. and the reason they do is because they do some smart things. they say, if a patient's coming in, let's get all the doctors together at once and do one test, instead of having the patient run around with 10 tests. let's make sure that we are providing pr
